The answer is that it depends on your priority, whether it be low cost, or job security related, doing very controversial/illegal things, or paranoia, or P2P filesharing,

SO, you must confess to us your sins and then we absolve you. wink



Ok, Lord please forgive me for what I am thinking about Dave9's response to my question. Please forgive me for what I want to type in my post to him.

How's that? banana

I just don't want people tracking me and I still wanna watch Netflix and Amazon and YouTube.

It's actually live in their app. Just downloaded the app on my iPhone and it installed their VPN cert.

Me thinks the OP needs the PC version.

I've got two accounts; one with ExpressVPN for home use and another with StrongVPN for teleworking purposes.

Never had any issues with either one of them, although I found ExpressVPN was easier to setup with my router for home use.

Will they all work with Neflix and Amazon Prime and YouTube and not have any effect on streaming?

LOL didn't think of that!

Gebo,
What devices are you using this for - smart phone, computer, or are you looking for a whole house VPN where everything on your network is going through it? Specifically when you say do they work with Netflix or Amazon Prime, are you thinking a Roku/SmarTV or again smartphone or computer?

For streaming 4K, you only need 25Mb download speed and much less for regular HD. Most good VPNs will be able to support this and shouldn't impact your streaming. The only issue that could come up is if they are routing you outside the US so it appears you are in a different country and may have different content available to see.

I have Nord VPN and it works pretty well. I get 100MBPS without VPN and 80MBPS with VPN.

I use NordVPN because I can put their script on my router and have every device in the house on it. I have another router without VPN that I can connect to because some websites detect VPN and block it (I'm talking about you BofA). I can switch back and forth as needed but mostly I'm on VPN.

Hi
I tried 'opera' which is a free one but it slowed my pc down so much it was unusable.

Am I correct in thinking a paid for one will not do this?

Also I have an older pc that is probably not helping. What are the minimum pc specs I need to help this please?

Many thanks.

If all you need to do is some quick location spoofing, Opera has a built-in VPN. Opera even allows the download of a portable version of their browser which doesn't need to be installed.

Else, I suggest NordVPN.

All three of those companies will still track what you are watching, regardless of a presence of a VPN. They aren't concerned with the IP address associated with the traffic.

Yes to all of the above and include Apple TV. The maximum I can get is 25 Mb download where I live.

Yes, there are quite a few ways to do that, e.g. your app ID, like your browser ID and many other ways

All I will tell you is that you should daisy-chain several VPN's with servers located in different regions.
